almost close enough to touch, you can see cargo containers are stacked four high with dark netting at one end on a barge some 250 feet long. theories on what this thing is range from a floating data center, a retail store, a super secret laboratory, all the way to a floating paintball arena. the crew tells me they did did some work on the project, but are sworn to secrecy, so we found our own expert, an architect who has built with shipping containers, and built on water. >> for this type of structure, i would have to say it's the first i've heard of. >> reporter: he said by building out of water, you're out of reach of many regulations. he thinks the theory of a data center cooled by sea water is entering, but puts his money on a floating google shopping center. >> they wouldn't be doing something so open unless they
wanted some kind of marketing blast announcing what it was. >> reporter: but alas, the google barge on treasure islands will keep it's secret for at least another day. so far google hasn't surrendered any of its secrets, but we'll stay on top of the story. >> that isn't the only mystery google barge. another one just like it is floating off the coast of maine. >> tonight a san jose man who was out looking for fortune is missing. 65-year-old water seaver went mining for gold in the high sierra last wednesday, but never came home. though nevada county sheriff's department and a team of 100 volunteers are combing through a rural area in nevada city, climbing up rocks and cliffs and treacherous terrain. tonight we talked to some people in his west san jose neighborhood. >> every day is either going to the park or the school, just

punch in the heart. >> reporter: inside to the church, a standing room only crowd came to pay their respects and find peace with andy's death last week. >> i think maybe being here in church might consolidate you for few minutes, but then the nightmare just will never go away, ever. >> reporter: many at the mass new the teen. >> they took away one of my friends from his parents, and from my life. >> for others, andy's face was a stranger in the crowd, until his death. now the 13-year-old a symbol of violence hitting too close to home. >> heart wrenching. it was very heart-wrenching, having seen the mother, i can't even fathom what she's going through. >> long after andy was taken back to the funeral home and his family left to mourn in private, the crowd stayed, offering prayers for child who could have been their own.
>> stop, stop, please, no more. >> reporter: the funeral was today. the burial has not yet been scheduled. earlier today, more than a thousand people, team, friends, and students from local middle and high schools, marched to the sheriff's office in santa rosa to protest andy's killing. well, a california lawmaker wants to reintroduce a bill that would require all toy guns to look like toys. state senator kevin deleon on the left there originally made that proposal back in 2011. he wants the guns to be translucent or brightly colored. the nr & some toy companies fought that proposal, and it never passed. we asked him about that. >> i would imagine the people who make these toy guns say the point is for them to look real, and no one wants a gun that's bright pink, bright yellow, or
bright orange. what do you say to that? >> we're talking about children's lives that have been cut down short by law enforcement, because law enforcement did not have the ability within a split nano second to discriminate between the real thing and a fake gun. >> well, federal law requires imitation guns to have an or arage tip on the barrel, but the law does not cover pellet guns like the one andy lopez was carrying. following the tragedy in santa rosa, police departments around the bay area are warning trick-or-treaters not to carry toy guns on halloween this year, or anything else that could be mistaken for weapon. surveillance video shows four suspects in the shoot okay off nightclub bouncer in campbell. police posted the video showing three men and a woman walk was so the spot nightclub around 2:00 a.m. on saturday. authorities say one of these four suspects shot the bouncer after he asked the group to turn down their music. the bouncer is recovering.
